Tony Says:

I am prescribed (2) tabs 25mg carvedilol, (1) tab amlodipine besyl 5mg,(1) tab potassium chloride 8meq sr, and (1) tab losartan k/hctz 100-25mg a day for HBP. I have been on this for past 8 years. I have severe leg/foot weakness and pain. I do not have diabetes but my family Doctor said it is probably neuropathy from unknown cause. This started since the onset of the meds. I also have poor balance. My pressure is under control but the effects are bad. Could the losartan be a major cause as I've heard a lot of negative issues with this med.

This may or may not be the case, but it sounds to me like the doctor doesn't want to admit that what he's prescribing you is causing the problem; for if he does take you off medication, then it probably affects his pay.

How are you feeling now?
